Welcome to the Beta version of the Information Standards Portal We invite you to help us to develop this site as a single point of access for all Information Standards and associated support materials in the context of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. Information Standards are essential for clear and efficient communications that serve choices, health, care and service accountability for everyone involved in English health and care. Please be aware that this is currently a test website and is not intended to be fully accessible or browser compliant. We very much welcome and encourage your comments and feedback about your experience in using the site and about its content and structure. Similarly, if you have any suggestions as to how we might improve the site, please let us know. Thank you for visiting the site.
